Jesus’ call to discipleship interrupts our lives in order to bring healing and forgiveness.

In Jesus resurrection we have victory over idols, cynicism, and death.

Materialism is a god that always demands and never satisfies. Jesus is a God who always gives and always satisfies.
Righteous is based on the work of Jesus, because the addition of any requirement of the Law undermines the gospel itself.
